PJ on his World SS Adventure

PJ Jacobsen has been running near the front in his first WSS season. Motomatters posted a great interview with PJ that is very wide ranging in scope. He sounds like a pretty smart young man.

I remember going to hangout at a local Supermoto race back in 04 and this kid was tearing it up, PJ was so fast as a kid. Seems like a real nice guy, we have a lot of mutual friends and he was sponsored by my old employer.
I think he is good, but likely too late for MotoGP, maybe a WSS front-runner with a win here and there, and then WBK. But really doubt he'll make MotoGP, though hopefully I am proven wrong.

I am hoping he can get that win or two you mentioned. I think he could have a lot of success in world supers. I'd say this season is a success so far. He's been impressive enough to get a shot and I'm sure he'll fare better than Superglue did.

I am always baffled about SuperGlue, I find it hard to find someone so good at SS and was so bad on a WSBK, and pretty much a failure on Moto2. I thought he would be a threat for a world title in Moto 2 by the end of his second year (which he did not even make), and winning a race here and there on the tracks he knew the first year.
Either way I do watch every WSS and root for PJ.

OK. That's strange. I guess the vodka money ran out?

Yea, it has to be incredibly frustrating for a good rider like Geoff (and Aaron) to be in this situation.

Erik had to know what kind of difficulty they'd face; maybe he underestimated it a little, but not by this much. The only plausible explanation I can come up with is they expected lousy results and chose to compete anyway (maybe as directed by Hero who's footing the bill). Meanwhile, back in Wisconsin, EBR is developing a new model specifically for WSBK competition that (hopefully) we'll see next year.

From the interview: "We thought with sheer drive and ambition we could make things happen, but it’s impossible.".

Sounds pretty naive to me.

It would be nice if EBR would/could get on track, on the track, since racing is an integral part of the name and mission.

We missed another BSB round last weekend by the way. Shakey won. Again.

Of course, he had to work for it....

LEGEND. (Official).

Youngun's are seniors now? So he beat some old guys that never raced at an elite level like him, while he was on superior equipment also?
Man, he sure showed them.

As much of a fan as I've been of Buell bikes (even the Sportster-engined ones), it always seems like "just wait till next years model".
